Power slowly restored after officials pressure utils. – Patrick headed to NH to stump for Pres. – ‘Bath salts’ under fire – DiMasi may serve in KY

OUR ANDY ROONEY: After he wrote about things that have happened within the last two decades, like the Herald’s availability online and modern coffee machines, I was really hoping Howie could have gone the whole column without a reference to a TV show that’s been off the air for 40 years. Oh well.

TRAIL BLAZER: Look who’s headed to New Hampshire to see what presidential campaigning is like help out his good friend he absolutely has no desire to succeed, Barack Obama. (AP)

AT LEAST THEY HAVE POWER: ‘Bath salts’ are huge on the Cape, because all the old people crush them up to get high before taking soothing baths. (CCT)

BANJOS: I assume this prison in Kentucky is one giant, unspeakably backward Deliverance-themed horror show. Good luck, Sal! (Globe)
